Stock Rip Then Dip As The Inflation Killer Breaks Loose

Stocks finished the day mixed, but the dollar was the real star of the day. The dollar index surged by more than 70 bps, climbing to 94.38. The significant damage came against the euro, which dropped by 75 bps and finished the day at a substantial support level versus the dollar around 1.16.

The technical set-up for the euro looks weak, with a break of support sending it to 1.14 and potentially as low as 1.11 versus the dollar. If the dollar strengthens to 1.11, you are probably looking at a dollar index trading around 98.

A dollar at that level will be like a wrecking ball for many commodities and global markets, and it will be unfriendly to many sectors of the stock market, both domestic and abroad. I would also expect it to be a negative force on oil. It won’t help curb inflation in other parts of the world; unfortunately, it will make those places experience even higher inflation rates. It will be a killer for global growth.

Oil

Oil prices did get to resistance yesterday at $76.75 and have since reversed lower. There is a considerable bearish divergence for oil between the price and the RSI. It would indicate that oil prices have likely peaked for the time being and have a significant drop in store for them over the medium-term. I know that is not a consensus view, but I’m not a consensus type of guy.

S&P 500

The S&P 500 was weak all day yesterday; forget about what the chart shows. It was dead for sale all day, and if not for some big options trade around 2 PM, the chart would look a lot worse. Yesterday was notable because the index got back to Tuesday afternoon's high and could not push beyond 4,385. At this point, that region has failed four times for the index. Meanwhile, the index closed on the lows of the day. I think we are going to see support break today, setting up a re-test of 4,300.

Teladoc

Teladoc (NYSE:TDOC) has officially broken its support level; my only concern with this one is that I may have been too aggressive with my $114.60 target. I went through it all in this story.

Roku

Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) is getting close to support around $290. All it needs at this point is a little nudge, and the whole thing should begin to unravel, with $230 the next stop.

Zoom

Zoom (NASDAQ:ZM) also looks terrible, and this one may need to drop to $230 to find some support.

Square

Square (NYSE:SQ) is getting crushed, too, with a break of $229 setting up a return to $200.

Ark

Meanwhile, all of these stocks have something in common and are part of the ARK Innovation ETF (NYSE:ARKK), which looks terrible. The next level of support is $107, which will need to hold to avoid going to $98. I had noted on Sept.8 this thing looked like it had trouble coming its way; I guess it did.

More and more mistakes, Michael. Example: you have said: "I think we are going to see support break today, setting up a re-test of 4,300". Reality: 09/30/21    S&P 500  4307.54.  Etc.  Small investors: be careful. Good luck!

Here I always find: very negative "info"... even when S&P 500 is bullish (medium and long term). Good luck!

The fall of the Dollar in 2020 is a Falling Wedge, the probability is a return to the beginning of the wedge around 100.
